SCAM - Gee Vee Electronics / Gee Vee Elect Ltd

Gee Vee Electronics is an online website that sell mostly digital equipment at fairly reasonable prices. Due to this, we bought a Samsung cell phone via their online store. The following day we received a tracking number for Optimal Courier Services and it showed that parcel is being shipped via Paris, France.

On the second day after the purchase we received a mail stating that the phone had arrived in customs, but we are required to pay an additional fee for customs clearance. At that point we got a little suspicious and started investigating.

We soon realized that this is a scam. We requested our money back, but have not received any correspondence after that. The physical address that they advertise on their website is not the actual address of the store. The courier company also does not exist and is also a scam (

Doing a bit more investigation, we realized that the cell phone number that is advertised as their contact number (073 880 2428) is also being used across various other online selling platforms across the country with different contact names associated to each ad.

    Its true, i have bought a Canon camera, R 10.200 and after I payed for it they refused to answer my calls and they delete the account I create in their website. Its been months I m waiting for the refund or the camera and nothing. Both fake companies (Geevee electronics and have FNB accounts that I reported to the bank but they didnt do anything, refund my money and froze those FNB accounts. DO NOT BUY AT GEEVEE ELECTRONICS !!!!!!!! Pablo Andres Berra.
